So apparently tacos are 'trending' right now and as much as I love a good old classic childhood taco (Old El Paso kit), sometimes I crave something a little lighter and fresher. My husband is also temporarily vegan which means I need to get a bit more creative in the kitchen. This was a hit!

Toronto is sizzling right now and sometimes we want something other than hiding out in an AC-blasted house to beat the heat. This is a refreshing summer drink to cool down when times are hot. I love this recipe becuase it isn't overly sweet and has a decent hydrating ratio to it (aka it's not all alcohol). Feel free to mix up the type of wine, liqour, fruit and tea to make it to your liking!Read More
